You are invited to attend one of our Member Briefings as we launch AEGN’s next three-year Strategic Plan for 2019 – 2022, and importantly our Environmental Giving Pledge.

Our Strategic Plan discussion will explore how we will tackle increasingly complex environmental challenges — including the climate crisis — over the next three years. Central to our work will be catalysing collaboration, building the skills and knowledge of our members and raising the profile of environmental giving. Growing sustainable investments and championing innovation will also be critically important for creating a sustainable future.

Our Environmental Giving Pledge is a critical component of our Plan, where we call upon the philanthropic sector to be bigger and bolder in their funding.  To act now in a courageous and strategic way to protect the environment.

Join us at one of our following Member Briefings (Please note that these are funder only events)
